EU Authorisation for Mycofix Secure and Biomin BBSH 797

AUSTRIA - Biomin announces the authorisation of two of its products as 'substances for reduction of the contamination of feed by mycotoxins'.

Two products from the well-established Mycofix® product line of Biomin, Mycofix® Secure (bentonite/dioctahedral montmorillonite) and Biomin® BBSH 797 (Gen. nov. sp. nov., formerly Eubacterium), have become the first-ever products authorised by the EU as substances with proven mycotoxin counteracting properties.

Biomin BBSH 797 is the first-ever microorganism to be authorised, thereby affirming its capability in the biodegradation of trichothecenes. The patented active bacterium in Biomin BBSH 797 modifies the structure of these mycotoxins, a biotransformation process that renders trichothecenes such as deoxynivalenol (DON) harmless.

Mycofix Secure is a bentonite (dioctahedral montmorillonite) that fulfills the strict requirements on aflatoxin-binding capability according to the European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL). In cooperation with the EURL, Biomin developed an analytical method to characterise the AfB1-binding capacity of bentonites which has now become a crucial part of the authorisation process for aflatoxin binders. These efforts spearheaded by Biomin have paved the way for legalising 'aflatoxin-binding' as an official claim.
